Polyphenols are the most abundant antioxidants in the diet and are widespread constituents of fruits, vegetables, cereals, dry legumes, chocolate, and beverages, such as tea, coffee, or wine. Experimental studies on animals or cultured human cell lines support a role of polyphenols in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases, cancers, neurodegenerative diseases, diabetes, or osteoporosis. However, it is very difficult to predict from these results the effects of polyphenol intake on disease… 
Protective Effects of Dietary Polyphenols in Human Diseases and Mechanisms of Action
More than 8000 polyphenols have been identified from plants, and several hundreds of dietary polyphenols were characterized in foods, such as fruits, vegetables, grains, dry legumes, chocolate, and
Polyphenols and prevention of cardiovascular diseases
TLDR
Future intervention studies should include a detailed assessment of the bioavailability of polyphenols, and more studies with purepolyphenols will also be needed to establish their role in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases.
Cocoa, Flavonoids and Cardiovascular Protection
TLDR
The hypothesis to include moderate amounts of flavanol-rich cocoa or chocolate in the daily diet might be of interest for cardiovascular protection, and the nutraceutical properties of cocoa and chocolate should be investigated.
Polyphenols as dietary supplements: A double-edged sword
TLDR
A considerable amount of evidence is accumulating which supports the hypothesis that high-dose polyphenols can mechanistically cause adverse effects through pro-oxidative action, and polyphenol-rich dietary supplements can potentially confer additional benefits but high-doses may elicit toxicity thereby establishing a double-edge sword in supplement use.
Natural Polyphenols: Potential for Disease Prevention
Natural plant remedies have been used for thousands of years to offer prevention, relief and cure for all types of illnesses, and people in the ancient times believed that good and sufficient food
Chapter 100 – Polyphenols and Breast Cancer Prevention: A Summary of the Epidemiologic Evidence
Phenolic compounds (e.g., flavonoids, lignans, stilbenes, and phenolic acids) are plant metabolites found in fruits, legumes, spices, tea, wine, cocoa, and coffee and may contribute to nutritional
Polyphenols and Skin Cancers
TLDR
The aim of this chapter is to discuss the dietary polyphenols in a concise manner, their sources, mechanisms of carcinogenesis, and their protective effects in relation to the skin cancers.
Polyphenol Antioxidants from Natural Sources and Contribution to Health Promotion
Polyphenols are the most abundant antioxidants in the diet. The main dietary sources of these compounds are fruits and plant-derived beverages such as fruit juices, tea, coffee, and red wine. These
Dietary Anti-Aging Polyphenols and Potential Mechanisms
TLDR
The aim of this review is to critically evaluate the experimental evidence demonstrating the beneficial effects of polyphenols on aging-related diseases, including antioxidant signaling, preventing cellular senescence, targeting microRNA, influencing NO bioavailability, and promoting mitochondrial function.
Potential role of phytochemicals in metabolic syndrome prevention and therapy
TLDR
Clinical studies are needed to better understand the role of bioactive compounds in the prevention and management of MetS, as inconsistent or conflicting results have been found in clinical trials when other promising compounds in vitro or in animal studies were used.

TLDR
Experimental dietary studies in humans showed the capacity of vegetables and fruit and their constituents to modulate some of these potential disease-preventive mechanisms, including modulation of detoxification enzymes, stimulation of the immune system, and reduction of platelet aggregation.
Intake of Flavonols and Flavones and Risk of Coronary Heart Disease in Male Smokers
Flavonols and flavones are antioxidant polyphenolic compounds found in tea, vegetables, fruits, and wine. In experimental studies they have been effective free radical scavengers, metal chelators,
Dietary catechins in relation to coronary heart disease death among postmenopausal women
TLDR
Of the major catechin sources, apples and wine were inversely associated with coronary heart disease death, and the data suggest that preventive effects might be limited to certain types of catechins, or that these are indicators of other dietary components or a healthy lifestyle in general.
Dietary flavonoid intake and risk of cardiovascular disease in postmenopausal women.
TLDR
Of the foods that contributed the most to flavonoids intake in this cohort, only broccoli was strongly associated with reduced risk of CHD death, and the data of this study suggest that flavonoid intake may reduce risk of death from CHD in postmenopausal women.
Inhibition of carcinogenesis by dietary polyphenolic compounds.
TLDR
This chapter reviews the inhibition of tumorigenesis by phenolic acids and derivatives, tea and catechins, isoflavones and soy preparations, quercetin and other flavonoids, resveratrol, and lignans as well as the mechanisms involved based on studies in vivo and in vitro.
Green tea extract only affects markers of oxidative status postprandially: lasting antioxidant effect of flavonoid-free diet*
TLDR
The overall effect of the 10-week period without dietary fruits and vegetables was a decrease in oxidative damage to DNA, blood proteins, and plasma lipids, concomitantly with marked changes in antioxidative defence.
Dietary catechins and epithelial cancer incidence: The Zutphen elderly study
TLDR
Because tea, the major catechin source in this population, was not associated with cancer risk, it seems unlikely that catechins are responsible for the observed inverse trend between non‐tea catechin intake and lung cancer incidence.
Polyphenols: food sources and bioavailability.
TLDR
The nature and contents of the various polyphenols present in food sources and the influence of agricultural practices and industrial processes are reviewed, and bioavailability appears to differ greatly between the variousPolyphenols, and the most abundantpolyphenols in the authors' diet are not necessarily those that have the best bioavailability profile.
Flavonoid intake and risk of chronic diseases.
TLDR
The risk of some chronic diseases may be lower at higher dietary flavonoid intakes, and a trend toward a reduction in risk of type 2 diabetes was associated with higher quercetin intakes.
Dietary intake and bioavailability of polyphenols.
TLDR
Both chemical and biochemical factors that affect the absorption and metabolism of polyphenols are reviewed, with particular emphasis on flavonoid glycosides.
